The place is awesome! The brisket is tender, moist, and all around delicious. The ribs were tasty too. The best part are the BBQ beans. This is a MUST stop in Jefferson.

This is one of the places where my daughter can eat with her food allergies. They are always nice. The only thing I would change: I would like to see BBQ on the menu!

I eat BBQ at Riverport in TX, mcLard's in AR, and Topp's in West Memphis. That's eat. Riverport makes the list bc the chopped isn't full of fat and the sauce is perfect.

Large party for lunch on busy Labor Day week- end for lunch. We had a variety of meals all were good. I had ribs and fried okra and would recommend highly. Your order at counter and find a table. Then they bring your food to the table and someone to help with refills, etc. Everyone is friendly and helpful !!

Took a four hour motorcycle ride just to get here. The BBQ was worth the ride. Meat was extremely tasty, juicy and filling. I suggest you try the their home made chips. I had the cajun flavor and they were delicious. If your down this way it is a most stop. Or you could also ways take a road trip... More

It probably goes without saying you’re not going to find much/anything to eat here if you’re vegetarian. Fried okra and potato salad. But it’s a memorable experience ether way, with the communal tables and Jefferson knick-knacks. You can see why it’s a bit of an institution around here.

We're from Memphis, TN, so to say that is a real compliment. The Texas BBQ is a bit spicier than Memphis BBQ, and it's a nice change. The service is fast, and it's obvious the locals love this place. Delicious BBQ, what else needs to be said?

My husband and I eat at Riberport BBQ often. We live a little more than an hour away and will drive to Jefferson just to eat here! We've never had a thing we didn't love. Most often we get the chopped beef sandwich with sides but anything here is outstanding!
